Let the Music Play
Celebrating live gigs after more than a year of lockdowns and restrictions, this multi-venue Fortitude Valley festival features The Jungle Giants, Shag Rock, Nerve and more.
With its four-word title, Brisbane's latest music festival sends a clear message. After more than a year of lockdowns and restrictions, all of which have impacted the city's live music scene, this new event wants to let gigs go on. It wants to Let the Music Play, to be exact, and it's taking to multiple Fortitude Valley venues on Saturday, September 18 to make that statement — and to show Brisbanites a good time..
Taking place at the Fortitude Music Hall, The Zoo and outside at The Brightside, this fest celebrates everything we know and love about heading to a gig — including being able to hop onto the dance floor. So, you'll be able to do just that as you mosey between venues and check up an impressive lineup that spans The Jungle Giants, Shag Rock, Nerve, Voiid, Concrete Surfers and more.
Also appearing: supergroup Expo88, which features members of Ball Park Music, The Jungle Giants, Good Boy, Sweater Curse and Simi Lacroix. They'll ring in a few special guests, too, and play a selection of Brissie's greatest hits — so expect tunes by Powderfinger, Custard, Veronicas, The Go-Betweens, Violent Soho and Savage Garden, obviously.
